Not worth it. All gravel. Not too interesting

Very overgrown and no blazes to mark the trail. After wandering around some game trails, I gave up

Four stars only because this trail should definitely be rated as hard: there’s at least 0.5mi of straight rock climbing and the remainder of the trail has miles of very steep inclines/declines to navigate. As another user mentioned, hiking experience is definitely needed for this trail and make sure to bring plenty of water with you, especially on these hot summer days.

We also saw a black bear run across the trail 30 yards ahead of us about 0.5mi after the rock climbing portion, so be alert!

most beautiful waterfalls

A good incline

We attempted the loop but went from the other side this time. Rocky Terrain and lots of up hill on this side. The first time we went on the lower side which was beautiful and filled with little streams and creeks.
You should definitely be an experienced hiker for this one. We didn't want to walk the beautiful boulder field because we had out dog. So we tried to make a new trail up and over with no success and had to turn around and find our path back. It was a lot of climbing up and down the mountain. We found lots of fresh bear poop when we were off the trail which made me very nervous.

Great hike! would like to try to hike the boulder field next time without the dog. But for a shorter hike and less experienced hikers, stay on the other side of the mountain and don't do the loop. ❤

The trail and the views were amazing. This trail is for more experienced hikers. The trails aren't marked very well so pay attention. Watch out for the snakes!

Never hiked the trail but I've been going to these falls for a very long time at least 3 times a year. It's a great place to relax and have lunch by the falls.

Trail was very overgrown and didn't appear to be maintained at all...
